This Sunday: Grace and Great Singing
This Sunday will be our last in Fellowship Hall. It’s been quite an experience! One of the blessings has been how great the singing sounds– so this Sunday we’re picking songs that will let us enjoy it to the fullest one last time. Don’t miss it!
We’ll also continue the series, “Meeting Jesus Up Close.” This week: Healing My Deepest Hurts. We’ll hear the story of a woman who encountered Jesus “Up Close” in a moment that was very nearly her last. But Jesus took a life of hurt and transformed it into a thing of beauty! Such an experience makes a person follow Jesus for the rest of their life, knowing him in deep and amazing ways. Come hear her story!
Back to the Sanctuary Moving Party
From Anna Borders, Building Superintendent:
After a long and hot summer, we are finally making preparations to move worship back into the Sanctuary, and I need some help! Directly after church this Sunday, September 13th, we will start to tear-down the set-up in Fellowship Hall, move relocated items back to their homes, and re-set classrooms to resume for the fall. There will be sub sandwiches, chips, and drinks for volunteers, and jobs for every ability level – if you physically can’t help, please remember us in prayer, give a word of encouragement, or bring a treat for dessert. I have enjoyed worshiping in Fellowship Hall, but I’m also glad it’s time to “come home.” With a nice crew of volunteers, we should be able to complete this move in record time! Thank you in advance for your help, I’ll see you Sunday!

New to You Knitting Class
The Health and Hospitality is offering a two-session New to You Knitting Class on Thursdays, October 29th and November 5th from 6 to 8pm at Yarn, 12 West Avenue A. The cost of the two session class is $25. It is highly suggested to use chunky yarn and chunky needles. (US size 10 or larger). This allows you to see the stitches and there is a level of instant gratification. Shannon at Yarn will have everything on hand should you need to purchase supplies from her. We need for the class size to be a minimum of 3 or a maximum of 8 people. If you are interested in taking this class, please let Lisa Dale know in the church office.

Disciple Fast Track
There’s still time to sign up. We have postponed the start date of Disciple I Fast Track until September 27 to allow more time for folks to sign up and for books to be ordered. If you want to join the class contact the church office or Amy Slater.
Also, if you have taken Disciple I before you are encouraged to join Disciple II led by Brenda Hogan. It focuses on the books of Genesis, Exodus, Luke and Acts. The class will start soon so contact Lisa in the office or Brenda Hogan if you’re interested.

Other Blessings

* Pantry needs: small amounts of any pantry item!
* Have you linked your Dillons Plus card with the church? If you do, a portion of all your normal purchases will go to support our ministries! You can set it up by clicking here (http://www.dillons.com/communityrewards) or contact the office if you’d like help.
